Geography (2030)

This is our current A-level specification.
For our new specifications see:

AS Geography (7036)

A-level Geography (7037)


A-level Geography offers a natural progression from GCSE. 

This engaging and flexible course gives students the opportunity to:

  • engage with the relationship of human populations to each other over space and time
  • study the relationship between human populations with their physical environment at a variety of scales from the local to the global
  • consider their own role in relation to themes and issues being studied and the roles, values and attitudes of others including decision makers
  • choose between specialised content at both AS and A2, including a dedicated fieldwork option on Unit 4.

The specification follows an issues and impacts approach to contemporary Geography that is suitable for all students.

Changes to A-level Geography reform timetable announced. Find out what this means for your subject on our Changes to A-levels page.
